Wow! Even in the few short weeks since The New York Times covered re-entry programs, it seems that somebody turned up the volume on this discussion. Just about every week, a company is “getting with the program” and introducing its own version of a re-entry, return to work, or paid internship program. These are fantastic opportunities that definitely fill a void, especially for those professionals looking to return to full-time, corporate work. There also is a significant population of women out there looking for something a little different.
With that in mind, I am thrilled to be collaborating with the Stamford Innovation Center and iRelaunch to offer a groundbreaking career re-entry initiative for those considering a return to flexible consulting work. Combining what iRelaunch does best—guiding professionals to return to work success through career assessments and job search tactics—with the Stamford Innovation Center’s knowledge of start-ups, participants now have the opportunity to hone the skills needed to re-launch a career working with smaller organizations. I will be leading the first 8 weeks of a 12-week program that will help participants find their niche and allow them to design their career in a way that provides flexibility.
The program starts on May 7th, and all sessions will be held at The Stamford Innovation Center, 175 Atlantic St., Stamford, CT. Registration deadline is April 27. All participants are eligible to interview for a paid project at the completion of the 12 week program. For more information or to register, click HERE.
